NFL Draft quarterback tracker: Who’s available to the Arizona Cardinals?

Apr 26, 2018, 4:43 PM | Updated: 6:42 pm

Rumors were flying before the 2018 NFL Draft. Why? Because of a crop of quarterbacks, several of whom could be options to go in the top 15 picks and a half-dozen overall who could make for first-round picks.

Considering the Arizona Cardinals would like to draft and develop a signal-caller to grow behind starter Sam Bradford and backup Mike Glennon, the domino effect of the top five picks and beyond will impact general manager Steve Keim.

So, we’re keeping track of all the quarterbacks selected before Arizona picks.

Above is a running list of the best signal-callers who remain on the board, as ranked by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.

Below, we will list the quarterbacks so far selected in the draft and by whom.

Would the Cardinals want them to fall to their pick?

Arizona owns the No. 15 selection and has been reportedly making calls to move up in the draft. The Cardinals also could consider moving down in the draft if too many quarterbacks — and the ones they like — aren’t on the board midway through the first round on Thursday.

If they stand pat, it’s also entirely possible they punt on taking a quarterback and fill another need: Central Florida cornerback Mike Hughes, Maryland wide receiver D.J. Moore, Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick, Florida State safety Derwin James and Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith are all potential fits who 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro believes could be targeted by Keim.

Quarterbacks selected

1. Cleveland Browns: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

3. New York Jets: Sam Darnold, QB, USC

7. Buffalo Bills (via Bucs): Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

10. Arizona Cardinals (via Raiders): Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA
